Political correctness (adjectivally politically correct; commonly abbreviated PC) is a term used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society. Since the late 1980s, the term has been used to describe a preference for inclusive language and avoidance of language or behavior that can be seen as excluding, marginalizing, or insulting to groups of people disadvantaged or discriminated against, particularly groups defined by ethnicity, ***, gender, or sexual orientation. In public discourse and the media, the term is generally used as a pejorative with an implication that these policies are excessive or unwarranted.The phrase politically correct first appeared in the 1930s, when it was used to describe dogmatic adherence to ideology in authoritarian regimes, such as Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Early usage of the term politically correct by leftists in the 1970s and 1980s was as self-critical satire; usage was ironic, rather than a name for a serious political movement. It was considered an in-joke among leftists used to satirise those who were too rigid in their adherence to political orthodoxy. The modern pejorative usage of the term emerged from conservative criticism of the New Left in the late 20th century, with many describing it as a form of censorship.Commentators on the political left in the United States contend that conservatives use the concept of political correctness to downplay and divert attention from substantively discriminatory behavior against disadvantaged groups. They also argue that the political right enforces its own forms of political correctness to suppress criticism of its favored constituencies and ideologies. In the United States, the term has played a major role in the culture war between liberals and conservatives.

    Trivia Which is correct: it's just you and I or it's just you and me?

    According to traditional grammar rules, after the verb “to be” we need a predicate in nominative case (ie. This is she. It is I.) and so “It’s just you and I” is correct. But out here in the real world, almost everyone feels more comfortable with the idea that after a verb we use objective...

    Trivia Is this correct: "The activity I do everyday is go to school."?

    No. It should be “going,” but “to go” is correct also. However, note that “everyday” is an adjective, and what is called for here is an adverb (or adverbial phrase) to describe the verb “do,” such as “every day,” not the adjective “everyday.”

    Trivia Which is correct: "The next thing to do is water the flower." or "The next thing to be done is water the flower."?

    It is common to hear “The next thing to do is …,” but this is not correct. It should be, “The next thing to be done is ….” However, the first sentence can be made correct by adding a phrase such as “The next thing [for us][for me][for you][for someone] to do is ….”

    Trivia Can we delete "as to" in this sentence: "Can you give me some indication as to when I am likely to receive a reply?"?

    It would be grammatically correct, but its meaning would change. The original sentence reads: “Can you give me some indication as to when I am likely to receive a reply?” If we deleted “as to” it would read: “Can you give me some indication when I am likely to receive a reply?” The meaning...

    Trivia Which is correct: "it is something that never changes" or "it is something which never changes"?

    Both can be correct since “which” and “that” are used in British speech and writing as relative pronouns or relative determiners that introduce subordinate clauses (e.g., in this case, “which/that never changes”). However, in American speech and writing, “which” is reserved for introducing...

    Trivia Which is correct: "this may be because of my hobby which is playing guitar" or "this may be due to my hobby which is playing guitar"?

    “Because of” is incorrect. It’s an adverbial phrase, so it must modify a verb, not a noun phrase (“my hobby”). “Due to” is an adjectival phrase, so it can modify a noun phrase (“my hobby”). So the sentence should be: “This may be due to my hobby, which is playing guitar.” To get “because...

    Trivia Which is correct: "They discuss whether they should build a hospital" or "They discuss if they should build a hospital"?

    Both could be used. However, the use of “whether” always implies at least one alternative. So, if “whether” is used, the sentence should be either: “They discussed whether they should build a hospital or not.” or “They discussed whether they should build a hospital or a nursing home.”

    Trivia Which is correct: "All these" or "All of these"?

    We should say “All these” because the preposition “of” would mean that only some of these were being referred to. Examples: We should say “Two of these flowers are wilting,” not “Two these flowers are wilting.” We should say “All these flowers are beautiful” or “All are,” not “All of these...

    Trivia Is this correct: and so?

    Yes. It is said in response to a statement that is open-ended. For example, if one person makes an empty statement such as “A wet bird never flies at night,” the second person could respond “And so?” It means, “Please provide a reasonable conclusion to your proposal.”

    Trivia Which is correct: "2 levels" or "2 level"?

    Neither is correct. It should be either "two levels" or "two-level." Numbers less than 10 should be written out, while those 10 and above should be written as numerals. Each of these examples can be correct, under different conditions.¹ "Two levels" is a compound noun. "Two-level" is a...

    Trivia What is the difference between "he has been to" and "he has gone to"?

    Using Paris as an example location, “He has been to Paris” emphasizes the speaker's presence in Paris, while “He has gone to Paris” emphasizes the speaker's journey to Paris. There may also be the overtone of a difference between the two, in that “He has been to Paris” suggests that the...

    Trivia Is this correct: "Some husbands do not approve of their wives having jobs."?

    The sentence should read, “Some husbands do not approve of their wives’ having jobs.” Notice the possessive apostrophe appended to the noun “wives.” Why? Because the noun before a gerund acquires (and requires) an apostrophe to show possession. So it is a grammatical error in the original...
  24. P

    Trivia Which is correct: "looking forward to meeting you" or "I look forward to meet you"?

    The first option is incorrect because it is incomplete. It should be: “I’m looking forward to meeting you.” Otherwise, it is correct. The second option is incorrect because you need to look forward to a thing—a noun—not an infinitive verb. The first option uses a gerund, “meeting,” which...

    Trivia Which is correct: "She is older than her brother" or "She is elder than her brother"?

    “She is older …” is correct. The comparative “elder” is reserved as an adjective for brothers and sisters, and as a noun, describing people who are recognized as respected older members of a family or social group. Examples: “She is older than he is.” “She is his elder sister.” “Of the two...

    Trivia Which is correct: "He has good English" or "He's having good English"?

    Neither is correct. A person does not “have” a language; a person speaks a language. You could change it to: “He speaks good English,” “He has a good command of English,” or “His [command of] English is good.”
  27. P

    Trivia Which is correct: "on that day" or "in that day"?

    Either can be correct, depending on the idea you want to express. ”On that day, which was a Tuesday, my sister and I went to the store together.” ”In that day, before antibiotics had been discovered, many people died from diseases which are now curable.” ”On that day” refers to one...

Did you know?

Credit is the trust which allows one party to provide money or resources to another party wherein the second party does not reimburse the first party immediately, but promises either to repay or return those resources at a later date.

Lenders want to make sure all their bases are covered before they extend you credit. That means they may look at factors other than your credit score to determine whether to lend you money. Your employment status also can play a role: If your income is too low or you haven’t been at your current workplace long, those factors could weigh against you.

Errors can come in a variety of forms. You may not have been credited for a payment you made, or you may have been charged for a purchase you didn’t make. A debt might be listed more than once, or your balance might be wrong.
